Reports said Pakistan army started firing in forward areas of Krishna Ghati sector at 6.45 pm. The Indian side retaliated, leading to exchanges. However, there were no reports of any casualties or damage on the Indian side. Reports of damage on Pakistan side couldn't be ascertained immediately. Yesterday also, Pakistan had violated ceasefire on the LoC in Digwar sector of Poonch district.

However, troops were maintaining high alert on the LoC to thwart infiltration attempts by the militants.
